    This thread is for all NHL off season news, including the draft and free agency.

    He retired all together? I thought he was just stepping away from the Caps head coaching position.

    My bad. I saw the ESPN update scrolling across the screen and it said Trotz retiring. I just looked elsewhere and it said he resigned from the Caps. The problem though is that there is only one other team without a HC, the Islanders. Of course, some team could fire their current HC and hire Trotz.

    Love the thread, Whovian. Great move.

    I cannot believe the Capitals didn't re-sign Trotz. Even if he won just one Cup in his entire season, the man has been putting together winning teams since his days in Nashville. He is a winner. I do not get this move at all.

    Anyone want to guess at which team is drafting who? My guess:

    1. Rasmus Dahlin - Buffalo Sabres
    2. Andrei Svechnikov - Carolina Hurricanes
    3. Jesperi Kotkaniemi - Montreal Canadiens
    4. Noah Dobson - Ottawa Senators
    5. Brady Tkachuk - Arizona Coyotes
    6. Quinn Hughes - Detroit Red Wings
    7. Filip Zadina - Vancouver Canucks
    8. Oliver Wahlstrom - Chicago Blackhawks
    9. Adam Boqvist - New York Rangers
    10. Ty Smith - Edmonton Oilers

    That's my guess at the top 10.
